This pedestrian bridge is one of many that span the River Tyne in Newcastle in the north of England. While we did not set out to see it in operation, I was a bit disappointed when we happened upon it just after it had opened and closed. We did walk across it.
It is called the Gateshead Millennium Bridge and links the southern side of the river, Gateshead, with Newcastle on the northern side. It opened in 2001 and quickly acquired the nickname, The Winking Eye. If you watch this slightly sped up video, you will see why.
